REVIEW: NARS x Sarah Moon Blush in Impudique


Named after the 60s fashion model turned award winning fashion photographer, this collection is said to be limited edition and is the 2016 Holiday collection of NARS. The only reason why I got this blush is because a fellow makeup junkie friend of mine bought a lot of products and this is one of those she tried once and did not like… So I bought it from her (Hooray for fellow makeup junkie friends!).


I would describe this as a warm pinkish red blush with a bit of shimmer. There were actually two blushes released under this collection: the Impudique and Isadora. When I checked the Isadora shade, I noticed that Impudique is the darker and bolder blush and I guess it was destiny that I got this because I am in love with it now.

THE GOOD BITS:


Photo on the left is at 5:00 in the morning; while photo on the right is at 7:00 PM in the evening. There is still some product left even after a long day at work + commuting from Quezon City to Pampanga and vice versa.
Pigmentation is superb. A little really does go a long way. I love how there is just a little bit of shimmer in it that it gives you the right and subtle kind of glow. It actually lasts the whole day. I do my makeup at 4:30 in the morning and the products was still on my face until I got home. Now I started asking myself, why did I not invest in good blushes like this before? Oh yeah, I was a cheapskate.

THE BAD BITS:

It’s not really a bad thing but just a tip… Just like what I’ve said before, a little goes a long way. This is my first NARS blush so when I used it, I thought I’d have to get a lot from the pan so I ended up having too much blush on my cheeks. Blending is the key to getting the perfect look of this blush on your skin. A little patience with blending will definitely make a difference.

OVER-ALL:



If only this blush isn’t limited edition I would definitely repurchase. It may be more expensive than the typical blushes I use (Ever Bilena, Maybelline, Max Factor, NYX) but I think it’ll last on me for more than a year. I’ve been using it everyday and since I don’t need to get much product from the pan, I actually save a lot. I’m giving this a rating of 9/10. The price can be too steep for some people (still for me) and there may be other cheaper dupes available but if you’ve got the cash, girl, I don’t know why you wouldn’t get this (well, aside from the fact that I don’t think it’s still available). First time NARS blush users may find this a bit overwhelming too and blending (for some) may take a lot of getting used to but the outcome is great, I tell you.

  6. That blush does look great but I agree. Some people may find it too pricey. Still, it seems like a great product.

  9. I've tried two Nars blushers, one is Orgasm which I absolutely despise and another that I couldn't remember and it was okay. I'm not sure if the quality of deluxe sample sizes differs from the full size but I honestly don't get the hype of Nars blushers.

    1. My friend wasn't a fan of NARS blushes too. The Orgasm did not work on her. I'm glad this one worked on me :)

  12. Haha that's awesome you bought this off your friend! Yay for fellow bloggers! I've always loved NARS blushes. I find that even though they seem to have a shimmer or 'glittery' affect, it almost never shows on the face that way. They are really really beautiful on the skin. I feel like if you judge it by the pan you may be turned off, or at least I was at first. Their products are definitely a little more expensive (just bought a $50 foundation from them), but I find their quality is always superb. This colour looks really great on you too! BTW, I am still loving your shorter hair! It looks so good on you!!

  13. That blush is gorgeous on you! I have had a friend do a guest post on my blog about makeup, and she swears by blush. Of course, her favorite color is "Orgasm" which can make a lot of us blush if we're asking for it at the makeup counter. NARS has an excellent recommendation. I found my friend's hue (I won't repeat the name) to be too dark for me, although it's supposed to be perfect for all skin tones. Maybe I just need to "tone down" the application as you recommend. Thanks for sharing, beautiful!

  14. You look so beautiful girlie, I love your haircut, it looks so good on you! As for the blush, how awesome that it worked out for you because the color really does suit your skin tone and it seems to be great and long lasting. I've never used a NARS blush before, only their shadows and loved it. Perhaps I'll have to check out their blushes now. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!
